A world history of photography
A World History of Photography encompasses the entire ranged of the medium, from the camera lucida to the latest computer technology, and from Europe and the Americans to the Far East. It investigates all aspects of photography -- aesthetic, documentary, commercial, and technical -- while placing it in historical context. The book's many special features include three technical sections with clear, detailed information about equipment and processes, a glossary, a time line, and an extensive bibliography -- all of which have been thoroughly updated. In addition, the most important new international work from the 1980s and 1990s has been integrated into chapters 11 and 12, which have been substantially rewritten to address the latest thinking about contemporary photography. The far-ranging text, numerous special features, and handsome design make this volume informative, visually exciting, and accessible for general and advanced students, collectors, photographers, and anyone else who loves photography.
